I originally purchased this Jig Saw for my husband because his just stopped working. Previously, he had started teaching me to use the jig saw and I was leery about it, but since he has a hard time seeing the lines we draw., I told him I felt comfortable using the saw. I have been doing all the sawing since I made this purchase.
I agree with a couple other reviewers that this thing will not cut a straight line. I almost ruined a counter top trying to make the cutout for the sink. Luckily I had a quarter inch to play with. I bought this to replace a burnt out cheap B&D. The B&D had no problems with accuracy and it cost me $25. To top it off, the blade actually pops out of this model more often than not right in the middle of a cut. Not good. Not by a long shot.
I work in a live theatre where they put on plays. I make sets and props this saw is definitely the best jigsaw on the market but just like other tool it is only as good as its owner it should not jump all over the place only if user does not hold wood or whatever down but that is for any saw. I used it for making 4 thrones these are smooth to the touch not much sanding need .
We have not yet used the jig saw, but in the past we have had good experiences with craftsman products. We hope craftsman will keep up to its promise of quality this time as well. we also bought the palm sander, hoping we made good choices.

Wanted to replace my jig saw that broke this summer. Looked in the box stores (***** & **********) but all of theirs were much larger and heavier than my old one. Finally I found one at Sears that is the nice light, compact one I was looking for. Works great.

I bought this item for my husband as a gift. After researching several models and reading the reviews I picked this one because it was a Craftsman and felt it would be very dependable.
